PULILAN, Bulacan—The local government of this town has secured P20 million in coronavirus vaccines from British pharmaceutical firm AstraZeneca, according to officials on Wednesday (Jan. 20).

The vaccines will arrive in the third quarter of this year or earlier, said Mayor Maritz Ochoa-Montejo during the town’s 225th anniversary celebration.


Montejo said priority in the town’s vaccine program included health workers and others on the frontline of the fight against COVID-19. Also on top of the list are government workers, senior citizens and other vulnerable groups.

Pulilan, an agricultural town, is famous for its “Kneeling Carabao Festival” which is held during the San Isidro Labrador Feast in May.


Montejo cautioned residents against violating health protocols, especially during wakes, burials and other gatherings.
